What do you cook to ring in the new year?
larsstarscanary posted:
In my family, we always celebrated the new year by eating a pork dish. Perhaps I'll make a tofu dish and start a new tradition.

What do you customarily eat on New Year's Eve/Day?
Tomato05 responded:
Ham on the bone, prawns, salads, cherries, lychees. (I'm in Australia, and we have lovely summer fruit at the moment)
Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff responded:
Living in the South, our New Year's Day meal is traditionally a very unhealthy ham, greens, black eyed peas and 12 grapes.

The 12 grapes are a Spanish tradition, one grape for each "dong" at midnight for good luck.

Happy New Year to All!
